BASS HEADPHONES!!! ON A BUDGET! NEED HELP!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey whats up guys. I just need help finding some bassy headphones. I listen to a lot of hip hop/rap and I watch a lot of movies. So, I have some requirements. I want these headphones to have great bass, I want comfort, somewhat portable (will be used at the gym), a detachable cable (not really a requirement but an added bonus) and they need to be around 100-150. They can be used or from amazon or ebay, wherever I can get a deal. I can get a pair of beats pro for 150 off ebay on a bid, so I want to know how those do, but I have available options with ultrasone hfi 580's and Audio technica ath pro700mk2's also if you have other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks, hope I can get help!

V Moda Crossfade LP2, great rap headphone, and it won't look silly on your head.

I think I could get something better for the price. What do you guys think of the ath pro 700mk2's???

The PRO700 MK2 needs to be amped to get that big bass. Without an amp I was not impressed.

Really? I heard poweramp would do the trick.

Looks like the beats pros might be my best bet if I can get a good deal on them

I had the PRO700 MK2 twice and I listen to mostly rap and dubstep. Without an amp the bass was (for a basshead) weak and the overall sound was kinda muffled. 

I tried the HFi580 and the bass is entry level for basshead with harsh highs.

 

If you can get a legit beats pro for that price than it's a pretty good deal. My beats pro is still my go to headphone for hiphop. I wouldn't use them for other genre though.

Sweet. I will just have to shop around, but I can find a legit pair for a pretty good deal on ebay I think. Thanks for the help!
